Just saw....

....something very VERY interesting. I was reading this months 5.0 and fast ford where they did some tuning on a GT500, and when they hooked up the diagnostic to see what was doing what, the throttle was never opened past 76 percent. WTF2:2:2: I'm guessing that's what some of the "tuning" that they did with GT500KR.

Re: Just saw....

i thought their ecu's dont unleash the full amount of power until a certain amount of miles are put on the motor. perhaps this is how it is achieved, by actually limiting the throttle input.

i know when they do pulley swaps and tunes on the GT500 they have to tune extra rich because as the ecu relearns itself it bleeds off less boost so you must make sure you have enough fuel in the tune so when its done learning you are still where you should be.
